95

America’s No. 1 corn seed treatment, Poncho Votivo seed treatment, also happens to be a favorite of America’s most famous cornfield, the Field of Dreams Movie Site. BASF Agricultural Solutions is proud to announce that Poncho Votivo is the official seed treatment partner of the Field of Dreams Movie Site. Andy Rahe, who farms the land on the Movie Site, has been using Poncho Votivo on its corn since the popular seed treatment came on the market more than 10 years ago.

“Growers have been trusting Poncho Votivo seed treatment for more than a decade, so when we learned that our country’s most beloved cornfield was also using it, we knew we needed to make it official,” said Scott Friedlund, BASF Product Manager, Seed Treatment. “We look forward to working with the Field of Dreams Movie Site and will introduce an agricultural educational element to the popular tourist destination.”

And it’s no wonder American’s favorite cornfield trusts Poncho Votivo seed treatment. With broad-spectrum insect control and strong nematode protection above and below ground, Poncho Votivo seed treatment continues to deliver higher yields and winning seasons.

“We’re excited to partner with BASF and Poncho Votivo seed treatment at the Field of Dreams Movie Site,” said Dan Evans, Chief Operating Officer of the Field of Dreams Movie Site. “The cornfields are a key player at our site, and we value the major role that agriculture plays in the Dyersville community and the state of Iowa.”

Tomorrow, baseball fans from around the country will watch as players take the field near the original Field of Dreams site in Dyersville, Iowa. The movie featured standout performances by Kevin Costner and James Earl Jones and garnered an Academy Award nomination for best picture, and the iconic cornfields are still a fan favorite among moviegoers and farmers alike.

Field of Dreams Movie Site

The Field of Dreams Movie Site is free to visit and open to the public year-round. Fans can immerse themselves in the small-town atmosphere by renting the home where the beloved movie was shot.
